Yesterday, I scrubbed the bathrooms and shopped for Thanksgiving dinner instead of writing. I had earmarked this weekend as a writing weekend, but I'm afraid it just didn't happen. I may get to it later today, but probably not. My 'catch-up' list somehow has taken priority.
How do you find time to write? Mine tends to come in spurts and waves. I'm feeling the need to write, but life is happening too much around me. I'm a morning person, with my best writing happening the first few hours of the day. So what do I do when those first few hours are filled up with other things?
My weekdays start at 5:15 a.m., and I'm running until I crash about 9:00 p.m. I don't think I can get up any earlier. I think I just need to figure out a way to add another day to my weekends. Is anyone else in favor of an 8 day week? We could call it Writeday. It could be sandwiched between Saturday and Sunday. I think that would work really well for me. We could all band together and sign a petition to send to the International Date Committee.
Oh well. I'd better get back to my list.
Writing for children is a passion - along with reading kid's books, writing plays for kids, and teaching kids how to write!
